The Archaeology of Underground Mines and Quarries

Some brief overview of book

Every county in England has a network of mine and quarry workings, a little-seen underground world that is full of mystery and complexity. Some include engine chambers, arched levels, deep shafts, underground canals, drainage soughs, and discarded equipment. This book presents a detailed introduction to the underground mining and quarrying heritage in England.

It reviews the many types of mineral and stone taken from the ground over several millennia and examines the wide range of archaeological remains that survive today. Featuring detailed photographs, maps, tables, and diagrams, as well as an extensive glossary of mining terms, this book sheds new light on the many and varied wonders to be found underground.
